‘The Story of the Orphan Train’

  • Print
Description:

As part of Metropolitan Community College’s Diversity Matters Film and Lecture Series, Pippa White, of One’s Company, gives a part theatre, part storytelling, part history performance that recounts ambitious and controversial efforts to rescue more than 200,000 orphans in New York from 1854 to 1929. Fending for themselves on the streets, homeless children were given a chance for a new life in America’s heartland by riding the orphan train. White’s performance makes the orphans come to life as she shares a heartrending and forgotten part of U.S. history.
